Jaguar Sport XJR-15 — A personal history of the design and development of the legendary supercar

by Peter Stevens

The sensational V12-engined JaguarSport XJR-15 has been called ‘the supercar that time forgot’. In this personal history, Peter Stevens, the car’s designer, offers an entertaining and insightful reminder of exactly what made it so special at its launch in 1990, and why this exceedingly rare car has become one of the world’s most sought-after classics.

This book is a detailed, often humorous account of how a master automotive designer helped Tom Walkinshaw to produce a road car that offered its lucky owners the chance to experience some of the sensations of the famous Le Mans-winning Group C Jaguars. Full of behind-the-scenes detail and anecdotes, it shows how this ground-breaking project produced the world’s first fully carbon-fibre road car.

It tells the full story of this remarkable project – from the early days of TWR and the Intercontinental Challenge race series that featured famous drivers such as Derek Warwick and David Brabham, all the way up to the XJR-15’s current standing in the classic-car world.

Key content:

  • The personal design history and philosophy of Peter Stevens, from early influences and Lotus to the XJR-15, the McLaren F1 and beyond
  • An in-depth look at how Tom Walkinshaw and TWR took Jaguar back to the winner’s circle at the world’s most famous race – the Le Mans 24 Hours
  • How the team behind the XJR-15 broke new ground by creating a carbon-fibre road car inspired by the V12-engined Group C sports-prototypes
  • The full story of the 1991 Intercontinental Challenge series that included races at Monaco, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps
  • Reflections on the XJR-15’s current standing and how it has attracted a whole new enthusiast following in the 21st century
  • More than 270 colour photographs and illustrations, plus contemporary sketches, press releases, newspaper articles, magazine stories and internal documents
